The absolute last thing anybody wants is a shy performing artist. That being said, it is also important to use some form of discretion in the beginning stages of a music career while simultaneously maintaining a strong sense of confidence during delivery. Whether we like it or not, some things are meant to be seen, intended to be heard, simply because they are so obnoxiously prevalent (for better or for worse). Markham’s dearest Mickey Blue’s third single “Flamboyancy” imposes statements left, right and center, making it abundantly clear to his peers that there’s no going back now.
One of Canada’s freshest producers Kaytranada gives us another club worthy remix of Kaleidoscope by AlunaGeorge. Kaytra puts his signature on this one with his bouncing bassline and funky drum rhythms. This is the latest of many popular tracks that he has reworked and made his own. The record label he is affiliated with, HW&W ( HUH WHAT & WHERE) has a ridiculous lineup of DJ’s and producers all bringing something very unique to the table. Peep the track on his soundcloud!
Done with this icy winter? Let Australian producer, Thomas Jack, warm us up with some Tropical House vibes. Thomas takes the classic Hawaiian jam, “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” and infuses it with laid-back, beach-y melodies that’ll surely give you a tropical experience. Just what we need to get us through the last leg of winter. Keep warm, and grab the free download here.
Mississauga’s own PARTYNEXTDOOR is back at it with this laid back ballad. Persian Rugs features everything we love about party; the de-tuned sampled, dynamic drums and catchy choruses. Following a similar theme to his past works, the OVO signee proves to us once again that he can provide us with just as much R&B music as his successor. Hit up the Soundcloud and give it a download!
Mickey Blue, the young professional. The boy means well, but his actions don’t always follow suit. That being said, just because he’s a realist doesn’t necessarily imply his intentions are pessimistic. This particular track revolves around the fear of acknowledging the unknown. When the woman of your dreams walks by you, getting her name doesn’t have to be the first priority. Explore each other’s extremities and be rewarded for your efforts.
